The best thing about the #MyMentalHealthStory campaign I launched in December of 2014 is I have had the opportunity to meet some amazing people. In this interview, get to know filmmaker, Jeff Holiday. Here Jeff shares what inspired him to become a storyteller and how his family's experience with mental illness and suicide has shaped the making of his short film, Boulevard.
Not to label it a leftover festival, but there is the sense that the movies in Tribeca have either already had their debut elsewhere or, more to the point, didn't have a debut elsewhere because they didn't make the cut. Still, I always enjoy the opportunity that Tribeca affords me as a critic and curator.
